    I learned the golden rule. From the time I was little, my mom let me know that treating others (including siblings!) the way I wished to be treated was a fundamental principle of being a good citizen. I have kept this lesson close to my heart throughout my life and am now thrilled to pass it down to my kids!

    My mom had a saying that has led me well through life: If you take the high road, you will never get lost. Staying above the drama and pettiness really lets you enjoy life with less stress and more fun!

    Through all the hardships our family has been through my mom taught me a life long lesson that I will always remember. Do good stuff, good stuff happens. Do bad stuff bad things happen. Karma.

    Many lessons learned but I have to say in the past few years I’ve learned from mom that every day is not a given to be who we were just the day before. Though everyone knows every day is not a given, with my mom each day she seems to be a different person not remember what was the day before.

    My mom taught me to always have faith in everything I do. She taught me how to persevere and how to stay positive no matter what situation I’m in. This is a lesson I carry with me in my heart to this very day.

    We may be two different people, they say the sun & the moon (being the hot-tempered me & her, the ever patient and diplomatic), a lot different in choices and views in life, but she taught me to LIVE MY LIFE! The earliest memory I could have was me falling on the ground after slipping from a bicycle and she looked at me and somehow, through her eyes, told me to stand up, and ran, and play again. She’s just right there, waiting for me to “need” her. And I thank her for the ME that I see in the mirror, and for the ME that is making a difference in the world.
    Thank you Mamang AMY ;))

    My mom once told me, “My mother taught me that I may not always agree with you but if you come to my door hungry, I will feed you all the food in my kitchen and listen to what you have to say. Maybe afterwards, I’ll realize I was more hungry than you.” My mom taught me to be true to myself and the ones I love. I learned from her that no two people are the same, to be an open book and to appreciate others differences in race, beliefs, and opinion (and to never let anyone go hungry if I can help it :)).

    The most important lesson that I continue to learn from my mom is to never give up or give in. From peer pressure in high school to feeling like I was going to pull my hair out with a toddler running around, my mom has always been there with words of encouragement. Her words aren’t always easy to take. Sometimes she gives me a not-so-gentle push in the right direction. But she has never steered me wrong. The past few years I have watched her deal with many changes – losing her dad, dealing with my dad’s illness & now looking after my niece & nephew. It hasn’t been easy for her but she has made it through. And I’m watching & learning.

    Sometimes you have to add your own ingredients to the recipe, that’s what makes the food taste better. If you add a little love, everything tastes better.

    The most important lesson I learned from my mother was to follow my dreams and to never give up. But, that I had to put the time and effort in. It wasn’t going to happen by itself. Say fall into my lap. This advice has been true in many ways in my life.

    Take a lesson from every experience, because our experiences don’t make us who we are. It’s the lessons we take from those experiences that do.

    The most important lesson I learned from my Mom, is patience! My Mom raised 6 kids (2 sets of twins only 2 years apart) all born within 7 years pretty much by herself because my Dad was in the Navy (for 33 years) and was gone a lot. She HAD to have a lot of patience, but rarely did she lose her patience with us. That alone is worth so much! I have so much love & respect for my parents for all they have done for us and all the sacrifices they made. They are great role models!

    My mom taught me to have empathy. She reminded me in hard times that I would be better, more kind, and have a better understanding for others. I am the mom I am today, because I had such a shining example of love and kindness.

    One important thing I learned from my mom that when things get bad, that you can always find something to laugh about! My mom had the greatest sense of humor, even in trying circumstances! My mom has helped me so much in my life, but the greatest thing she taught me is not not take life to seriously!

    That there is nothing stronger then a mothers love. Or the determination to survive when she knows her kids need her at a young age. My father left us very young and my mom found herself raising twin girls as a single parent. Only to find out at 32 she had ovarian cancer. She won that battle. At 65 she found out she had breast cancer and won that battle too. She showed us all never give up even when you feel you want to. Mom’s are amazing people I hope I did at least half as good of job raising my two boys as my mom raised my sister and I

    The most important lesson my mom taught me was to laugh. No matter the situation we always look for the absurd. When I failed my karate belt test, she asked me if there were any higher ranking kids in the class that I could watch & learn from. Teary-eyed, I thought for a minute & said, “Well, there are now!” since my fellow students had all passed. Her favorite expression was, “This too shall pass,” and I have learned that all things good and bad pass. So she taught me to grin & bear it through the bad stuff and to savor and truly try to enjoy the good. Thanks, mom!

    My mother and I have had some serious battles and there have been many times that we have not spoken for long periods of time. Even after all the arguments and hurtful things that have been said…she has let me know that no matter what happens in my life that I can always count on family. If I fall they will pick me up.

    The best lesson that my mom has taught me is that we, as a family can get through anything as long as we are together. We can loose everything, like we have, but it does not matter because everyone is alive and healthy. I plan on passing this lesson down to my daughter 🙂
